Steve and I split off from the main group this day and went to Universal Studios. If it were not for the new Harry Potter part of the park, I would not have been all that interested, but I’ve read all the books and heard a lot about the new attraction so I thought it might be worth going to see. It was cool, though incredibly crowded and probably a disappointment given the hype. But I did get to go on the rides and drink butterbeer in front of Hogwarts:
With just the two of us, Steve and I managed to hit pretty much all of the adult rides in the Islands of Adventure park.
Meanwhile, the rest of the family went back to Magic Kingdom and spent the day there.
On a side note, when Steve and I walked out to our car to head to Universal Studios we noticed that one of the tires was flat. We ended up putting on the spare, driving it to the shop, dropping it off to be repaired, then picking it back up on the way home. The rest of the family ate at Magic Kingdom, so Steve and I picked up some grub on the way back to the hotel and called it a day.
The Harry Potter attraction is cool and probably worth seeing, but don’t get your hopes up too high. It’s smaller than you’d think and the main ride isn’t particularly impressive (one of the others is pretty good though).
